Luke, alongside his wife Hazel, is an 'Explorer-in-Residence' at the Royal Scottish Geographical Society and an Arctic guide for the children’s charity, The Polar Academy. His inspiring talks draw on his many remarkable adventures and achievements, which show others how much can be achieved with a positive mindset and determination.
Having explored and witnessed the changes taking place on the planet and worked for the United Nations, Luke is also passionate about the environment and making a positive difference to climate change.
Overcoming obstacles and turning fear into an opportunity is something Luke speaks passionately about thanks to his own personal experiences.
In 2016 for example, less than two years after undergoing brain surgery and with an artificial pacemaker, Luke became the youngest Brit, the first Scot and one of less than 20 people in history to ski 730 miles solo and unsupported to the South pole.
Luke also talks on the topics of teamwork, resilience, goal-setting and achievement and exploring the world, something he knows all about through his adventures.
Luke is an ambassador for Marie Curie and the Greener Scotland Campaign. As well as being a TEDx speaker, Luke has delivered presentations for various audiences including, among others, The House of Lords, Credit Suisse, Edinburgh Mountain Film Festival, the Royal Bank of Scotland, and school pupils.
Luke is available to speak individually and also alongside his wife, Hazel.
I love creating real and positive impact by developing a connection with the audience, helping unlock fresh perspectives and new ideas for people to take home and apply in their lives.
